More details on controls are here My first response to the question was along the lines of "well, if you want to choose dynamically, just extend the existing control and make it offer the selection".  But just a minute later I got an idea ... what if, there was a way to create such dynamic control already.  In Magnolia 4.1, we have introduced a dynamic DAM handlers. Those handlers  let you choose the source for the asset to be displayed in a page. And isn't the target for the link is just another sort of an asset?
